    Love how he pronounces "wind", LOL.

    Nene looks like he wants to choke someone lol. Seriously he looks like a tough, tough dude. One guy you don't want to mess with.

    Wait what? This guy is a freak of nature. All he needs to do is work on his shot and could eventually be the best player in the NBA. He already has the foundation. I don't see anybody that can stop this kid in 2-3 years. Last night was just a glimpse

    Good win, wish Capela played a bit more is my only complaint. He's by far our best defensive big and needs some reps to knock the rust off. The sooner he's back at full swing, the better.

    When most players say they lost weight in the off-season I don't care because it's most likely they lost muscle from vacationing and not fat from "changing their diet". Heck, they probably gained fat.

    Pat, however, definitely gained muscle and lost weight in the off-season. That story was not bs.

    Ouch. That played this at the arena? I hope Clint knew about that beforehand when he did these videos.

    It really helps having this game to wash out the taste of recent losses. I think Gordon seems to be the key. In the Miami game he was really off. He's been amazing all year, and it's bound to happen once in a while. But usually one of several guys will step up big to be a third scorer, but Gordon is usually the number 2 (sometimes #1 scorer on the team). When his shot didn't fall it hurt us. Luckily against the Bucks he was dominant.

    Harden continues to be amazing as he has been all season. It's really fun to watch.

    lol that was funny as hell. I was looking at Clint to see how his reaction would be and it looked like he was trying to hold his laughter in.

    It's not so much that Gordon was off against Miami. It's that he took a buttload of shots. When you shoot 3-17(including 1-10 on 3s), those are shots that could've gone to another player. I get that he's a shooter and the mentality is to keep shooting, but at some point, you have to concede you just don't have it that night and defer to someone else(D'Antoni needs to step in in those situations). Especially when you're hobbled by toe and ankle injuries.

    It reminded me of that infamous John Starks 2-18 performance in Game 7 of the 1994 Finals. Had he stopped jacking up so many desperate 3s and let Harper, Anthony, or Davis take them instead, maybe the Rockets don't pull out that win(and the title with it).

    I guess, I've bought into the shooters mentality of keep on shooting.

    Morey needs to get us more shooters, we shoot most 3s in the history of the game,and dekker, brewer, harrell, capela, nene are not 3 pt shooters

    morey got to get us more 3pt shooters, forget rebounding, forget defense all these things can be replaced and compensated for by a great system in place, just give us more 3pt specialists...

    After that 100 year old lady received the game ball from Harden. He was nice enough to this before we headed back into the tunnel!

    One more shooter would suffice. We have Anderson, Gordon, Ariza, Harden, and Bev who are all sufficient 3-point shooters(well, Anderson more on the road than at home). We just need one more 3-point marksman for those nights when Anderson or Gordon are hurt or aren't knocking down open shots.

    Jabari Parker is going to be a special player in this league man. 20ppg 6rpg 3apg coming off essentially his rookie year (acl injury prior season)... Controversial opinion, but I'm higher on him than the Greek Freak..

    It is not that we need a shooter, we need a BIG that can stretch the floor.......

    Some Rockets fans, like me, care about the Beasley trade because of what we got in return o_O
